                Top 10 Things to do in Cradle Coast and surrounds

                Tasmania’s incredible natural scenery and outdoor activities are a huge drawcard for the many visitors that traverse its shores. The Cradle Mountains are no different with a myriad of things to do.

                The Cradle Mountains are situated within the northern end of the Lake St Clair National Park and is considered to be one of Australia’s most incredible wilderness experiences rich with ancient rainforest, lakes and mountain peaks that are an outdoor enthusiasts playground. From extended hiking trails, guided canyoning adventures, cruises along the Gordon River and more. And, the who could forget the furry residents of the Cradle Mountains. It is not uncommon for you to spot wombats, echidnas and Tasmanian Devils on your travels.

                First-time visitors will find Cradle Mountain tours valuable and well worth the money to tour the region and be guided on short hikes to familiarise yourself with the region. If you're really feeling adventurous, you can even give canyoning in the Cradle Mountain a go.

                There is even something for the foodies too with the Tarkine Oyster Farm, near the Tarkine Forest, serving up some of Tasmania's best (and freshly shucked) oysters on a platter.
